Checker Board Ice Cream Cake Slice

Starting the third week of blogging marathon,66th edition with checker board recipes as theme.As I have already shared the checker board cookies,I planned to  make something with ice cream..With the basic vanilla cake and vanilla ice cream I tried an ice cream cake slice.For the chocolate ice cream added cocoa powder in the vanilla ice cream mixture.Also for the bottom layer of the cake I used the cake crumbs.Lets move on to the recipe..............

                            Checker Board Ice Cream Cake Slice

   Basic Information

   Preparation time ~ 20 minutes
   Baking time ~ 30 minutes (for the cake)
   Freezing time ~ 6-8 hours
   Makes ~ 1 loaf(8.5 x 4.5 inches)


Vanilla cake 
1 loaf
Heavy whipping cream
3 cups
Condensed milk
12-14 oz
few drops
Cocoa powder
2-3 tbs
1/4 cup

  • Make the vanilla cake and let it cool down completely.Slice the cake into two if you are using the cake for the bottom layer.(I used the crumbs only for the bottom layer as kids wanted to have some plain vanilla cake as such).Press the crumbs on the bottom of the pan tightly,keep it aside.Take the whipping cream in a bowl.

  •  Beat the cream until a soft peak consistency is reached.Now add the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla.
  •  Mix it well and divide it into 2,to one portion mix in the cocoa powder in milk and add it to the whipped cream mixture.Gently mix it well.Take the vanilla and the chocolate mixture in a ziplock cover separately.
  • Squeeze the vanilla and chocolate alternately on top the cake crumbs set in the loaf pan as shown.Gently level it with a butter knife and top it with the cake slice.Freeze it for 6-8 hours or over night.
  • After the freezing time is completed,keep the loaf on a bowl filled with warm water for few minutes.Then invert the pan and gently on a plate and tap the bottom of the pan.Slice it and serve it.

  • I didn't line the pan but it can be lined with cling wrap for easy removal. 
  • I made two layers and row,it can be increased if the size of the pan is bigger.
  • The top portion of the cake can be drizzled with chocolate syrup and topped with nuts for extra rich taste.
